The following forms may be downloaded and used to submit a New Initiative Proposal or a Seed Grant Proposal.

Completed forms should be e-mailed to newinitiatives@ieee.org.

 

IEEE New Initiatives Proposal Form

Any IEEE member, volunteer, or IEEE organizational unit may use these forms to submit a New Initiative Proposal to the IEEE New Initiatives Committee (NIC). IEEE staff groups require a volunteer champion or an operational unit as a co-sponsor. Typical New Initiatives are expected to require US$100,000 or more for a 12-month period. However, any project proposed to the New Initiatives Committee with a total budget exceeding US$40,000 will be considered a New Initiative and expected to be submitted on the following New Initiative Forms.

A New Initiative Proposal will identify potential new and/or different IEEE programs, products, or services that will provide significant benefit to IEEE members, the public, the technical community, or customers, or which could have lasting impact on IEEE and/or its business processes. Initiatives must be of strategic importance and demonstrate a clear benefit to IEEE.

IEEE Seed Grant Proposal Form

The seed grant is designed for potentially small-scale and/or high-risk proposals where relatively small amounts of funding are required to get started. Seed grants are limited to projects that require funding of US$40,000 or less.  Seed grants must also demonstrate a clear benefit to IEEE, its members, the public, the technical community, or customers. Projects may be self-contained or, if successful, may serve as a demonstration of feasibility for a subsequent proposal for a higher level of funding through the New Initiative process.
